A Man Caught Texting With Both His Hands While Driving With His Knees

A Mississippi man was caught texting while driving his vehicle through Alabama, which by itself is already a serious matter. But what the officers found was the man “double texting”, that is, sending messages with a phone in each hand while his knees were on the steering wheel. To make matters worse, there were two women and a 3 year old in the backseat of his vehicle. It also did not help the man’s case that he had $4500 in cash and prescription drugs in his car. The Mississippi man was subsequently charged with illegal possession of Xanax and possession of a controlled substance, NBC News reports.

It is unclear what had prompted the authorities to search the man’s vehicle, which led to the discovery of large amount of cash and drugs. In general, a search warrant is needed to conduct a search of one’s person or property. However, during a traffic stop, the police only need probable cause to legally search your vehicle. In California, an officer has probable cause if the facts known to him would lead a person of ordinary care and prudence to believe and conscientiously entertain an honest and strong suspicion that you are guilty of a crime. For instance, probable cause may include the sight or smell of narcotics or contraband in plain view or plain smell, or incriminating statements made by you, which would lead an officer to perform a search and make an arrest.

Southern California Woman Sentenced To Jail After Pleading Guilty To Felony Theft By False Pretense

A Southern California woman was recently sentenced to 9 months in jail for her role in a multifaceted scam of a Santa Clara senior that started with the good news of a sweepstakes win and then took a twist, turning into threats of legal repercussions for being swindled in the first place, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

The San Jose Mercury News reports that the scam started last October, when the Santa Clara elderly was informed that she had won a sweepstakes for more than half a million dollars. However, to claim the winnings, she had to send a “nonresidential tax” fee of $4,000 to an agent. After doing so, a man posing as an FBI agent contacted the victim, informing her that she had been tricked, and that she would have to fork over $25,000 in order to avoid litigation. The victim then received phone calls from people posing as CIA and IRS agents asking for more money.

The Southern California woman went to the victim home, and picked up the funds. The woman pleaded guilty to and was convicted of felony theft by false pretense, and was ordered to pay $45,000 in restitution that had been scammed from the victim.
